(Jan. 10, 2013) -- -- Cabela's Incorporated, the World's Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, will officially open the doors to its Grandville, Mich., store on Thursday, March 21. The store will open for business at 11 a.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Cabela's executives and local dignitaries will begin at 10:45 a.m.
Grand opening will be part of a weekend-long celebration featuring special guests, outdoor celebrities, family activities, giveaways and more.

It will be Cabela's third store in Michigan, joining the Dundee location opened in 2000 and a 43,000-square-foot Cabela's Outpost in Saginaw scheduled to open Feb. 14.
The 88,000-square-foot Grandville store will be located on the east end of the Rivertown Mall retail corridor in a new 380,000-square-foot retail center. Cabela's expects the store to employ approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Grandville and the surrounding area.
The building's exterior will reflect Cabela's traditional store model with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. A large glass storefront will allow customers to view much of the store's interior as they approach the building.
The inside will highlight Cabela's next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience. It will include a mountain replica featuring North American game animals re-created in their natural habitat, as well as a built-in aquarium stocked with fish native to the area. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store also will feature dynamic wildlife displays, a deli, Gun Library, Fudge Shop and Bargain Cave.
Currently, Cabela's operates 40 retail stores across the United States and Canada. In addition to the Saginaw and Grandville locations, the company has previously announced plans to open stores in Columbus, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; Green Bay, Wis.; Thornton, Colo.; Lone Tree, Colo.; Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; Kalispell, Mont.; Anchorage, Alaska; Bristol, Va.; Christiana, Del.; Woodbury, Minn.; and Greenville, S.C.
